Keith Thompson

Pastor

The tender age of 17 was when I first began to wrestle with God’s call to ministry. It was that call that led me to college Texas Christian University, seminary (Austin Presbyterian), and to pastorates in Texas and the North Carolina coast. In 2000, God called us to the beautiful forest we call Brevard, and it is my honor to serve as Pastor here. I enjoy hiking, and spending time with my wife, Debbie, and our daughters, Hannah and Hollis, and our dog, Max.

Peyson Moss

Peyson Moss

Director of Music

At 11 years old, I began serving as pianist at a small Baptist church in my hometown of Lincolnton, GA. Over the years, I began to realize that music was my calling – both sacred and classical. After graduating from the University of Georgia in 2013 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Psychology, I completed my Master’s degree in Collaborative Piano at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, MD. Missing life in the southeast, I returned to Augusta, GA and began serving as the Organist and Music Assistant at Reid Memorial Presbyterian Church, as well as Pianist at Augusta University. In the fall of 2018, God called me to Brevard, NC. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, spending time with my two nephews and niece, catching up on the latest TV shows, and spoiling my tabby cat, Winston.

Sarah Grace Montgomery

Sarah Grace Montgomery

Associate Pastor

I began feeling called to Ministry as part of my own experience of faith formation growing up at First Presbyterian Church in Decatur, IL. After graduating from Presbyterian College with a degree in Christian Education in 2005, I served as Director of Christian Education for 12 years at churches in Charlotte, NC. During that time, I felt called to Pastoral Ministry and pursued a degree at Union Presbyterian Seminary in Charlotte. In February of 2018, God called my husband Michael and me, along with our children Margaret and Owen to Brevard. I am passionate about Faith Formation and ministries with Children and Youth, as well as finding ways to serve those in need in the community. I enjoy cooking, yoga, singing out loud to 90’s pop classics and finding ways to make my children giggle.

Pat Crosby

Pat Crosby

Bookkeeper

Hello- I’m Pat Crosby. I serve as the Bookkeeper for the church. I spent many years working in corporate America, where one often questions how what they do is really meaningful. In this calling, I know for sure. I am blessed to witness each day our congregation steward across many domains of living—helping others, working for the church, and yes, their finances. How blessed I am.
